on corsets

Grace your figure in a Thomson’s Crown Corset.  This advertisement appeared in The Brisbane Courier of 22 February 1902.  Would but the women tempted to purchase the white or dove colour of this garment had read or heard of the medical information shared in the 1 July 1887 issue of The Dawn.  Later still, in a 1944 report in The Argus, a corset was a place to conceal cash.  Leaves you wondering whether the unfortunate lady was escaping when she took ill.
